Packing Details

Vacuum packing is a method of packaging that removes air from the package prior to sealing. Shrink film is sometimes used to have a tight fit to the contents. Vacuum packing reduces atmospheric oxygen, limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria or fungi, and preventing the evaporation of volatile components.

Description


FRESH CHIVES CEBOLLINO 

Chives grow in clusters, their blade-like leaves growing straight upward. The green leaves are hollow and come to a point. Chives can grow up to two feet tall in ideal conditions and can spread out up to 12 inches around.

They have a mild onion flavor, that doesn’t tend to leave a long aftertaste. Chives sport globular spiky, pinkish-purple flowers in the early summer months, which are also edible and share the same mild onion taste. Some varieties of Chives have white and red flowers.

Current Facts

Chives are perennial herbs that are commonly found in kitchens and gardens. Botanically Chives are known as Allium schoenoprasum, and they are known most often as “common or conventional” Chives, or Onion Chives, to differentiate them from the garlic variety.

They are members of the lily family and are in the same genus as onions. Common Chives are part of the classic French herb blend called fines herbes (pronounced fien erbs), along with flat leaf parsley, French tarragon, and chervil.

Nutritional Value

Chives are a good source of calcium, iron, phosphorus, and sulfur. They also contain high amounts of potassium, vitamins A and C. Phytonutrients in Chives are beneficial for the digestive system as well as blood circulation. They have similar properties to those of garlic.

Applications

Chives are used as both a garnish and as an aromatic herb. Typically, Chives are added at the end of the cooking process because they lose flavor when heated. Chives pair well with parsley, tarragon, and chervil, which together make up the well-known French “fines herbes”.

Bundled together, the herbs are added to stocks and soups and removed at the end of the cooking process. Fines herbes are also used fresh, chopped and mixed and added to salads. Add chopped Chives to potato dishes, quiches, scrambled eggs, or a bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese.

Give butter a hint of flavor by adding Chives and use it on baked potatoes, steaks or use it as a rub for chicken. Preserve Chives by either chopping and dry-freezing (in an airtight or vacuum sealed bag) or add to vinegar, for use as a salad dressing or marinade.

Add chopped Chives to olive or another oil to use as a dip for crusty bread. Fresh Chives can be stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, as long as they are kept dry, for up to a week.

Nutritional breakdown of chives

Chive is a nutrient-dense food, meaning that while they are low in calories they are high in beneficial nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. One tablespoon of chopped chive contains 1 calorie and 0 grams of fat, 0 grams protein and 0 grams of carbohydrate while providing 3% of the daily value of both vitamins A and C. One serving of chives also contains a small amount vitamin K, folate, choline, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium.

Health benefits of consuming chives

Cancer: Allium vegetables have been studied extensively in relation to cancer, especially stomach and colorectal cancers. Their beneficial and preventative effects are likely due in part to their rich organosulfur compounds.

Although the exact mechanism by which these compounds inhibit cancer is unknown, possible hypothesis includes the inhibition of tumor growth and mutagenesis and prevention of free radical formation.

Prostate cancer: In a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, researchers used a population-based, case-controlled study to investigate the relationship between allium vegetable intake and prostate cancer. They found that men with the highest intake of allium vegetables had the lowest risk for prostate cancer.

Esophageal and stomach cancer: Frequent intake of allium vegetables such as chive has been inversely related to the risk of esophageal and stomach cancer. Several survey-based human studies have demonstrated the potential protective effects of consuming alliums, as well as reports of tumor inhibition following administration of allium compounds in experimental animals.

Sleep and mood: The choline in chive is an important nutrient that helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning, and memory. Choline also helps to maintain the structure of cellular membranes, aids in the transmission of nerve impulses, assists in the absorption of fat and reduces chronic inflammation.

Folate, also found in chive, may help with depression by preventing an excess of homocysteine from forming in the body, which can prevent blood and other nutrients from reaching the brain.

Excess homocysteine interferes with the production of the feel-good hormones serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, which regulate not only mood but also sleep and appetite as well.
